Why do microwave ovens break down?

  • Cookware unsuitable for microwave cooking is used. Only glass or plastic dishes can be used in the microwave. 
  • There is a metal object in the working microwave. Often users leave cutlery in the cookware, which can lead to sincere cracking and breakdown on the inner surface of the chamber. Use of metal cookware or cookware with foil patterns on it leads to the same consequences.
  • A special plastic cover is not used when heating food. This protects the cavity walls and interior against contamination from liquid droplets and grease evaporating from the surface of the food during heating
  • Regular microwave services are not carried out.

Main malfunctions of microwave ovens

Microwave oven does not turn on. 

There may be several reasons for the microwave oven not turning on:

  • The power cord is faulty. Perhaps it is broken or the contacts of the wire from the control board are broken. You can fix the problem by soldering the contacts, or if the reason is in the cord - replacing it.
  • The high voltage fuse is blown. Its replacement is required.
  • The door lock micro switch is broken. It needs to be replaced or the contacts need to be repaired.
  • The thermostat does not work. Here it is necessary to find out whether the thermostat has burned out and it is necessary to replace it, or whether there are problems in the cooling system of the furnace chamber. 
  • The control board is out of order. Frequent causes of such malfunctions are voltage spikes. 

The platter does not rotate.

The plate does not rotate properly or does not rotate at all due to a malfunction of the motor that rotates the tray. Most often the motor breaks down because of water droplets, grease and food particles sticking to the shaft. This causes the shaft to become difficult to rotate, increasing the load on the coil and causing it to burn out. Coil burnout requires coil replacement.

The microwave does not heat.

  • Fuse blown. Requires its replacement.
  • Magnetron breakage. The causes of such breakdowns can be voltage fluctuations in the network, a short circuit, a faulty capacitor, as well as wear and tear of the element. A qualified technician can deal with the causes of magnetron failure.
  • The mains voltage is below 220V.

Sparks and crackling in the microwave oven.

These signs indicate that the mica plate has burned out. This is caused by heating food in an open cookware. This causes liquid and fat to evaporate from the surface of the food and settle on the plate. Also, the mica can burn out if any, even a small metal object, is placed in the chamber. Or excessive wetting of the plate during cleaning.

The touch pad buttons do not work.

During operation, the contacts on the buttons are broken. Requires them to be repaired, or a complete replacement of the button or touchpad. Also, the lack of response to pressing a button may indicate a malfunction of the control unit.
